I’m late letting you know about this—sorry—but I just found out myself. The American Family Association and Revival Fires International are hosting/hosted the National “Truth for Youth” week August 7–11. A “Truth for Youth Bible will be given to all teenagers ages 13-18 who commit to give the Bibles to their unsaved friends in school” says the email I received. This Bible is also available in Spanish.
You can also purchase one of these Bibles for $3.00.
Their message goes on to say:
The TFY consists of the New Testament in the God’s Word translation, along with 100 pages of powerful full color comic stories that are packed with “absolute truth” regarding issues young people are faced with, such as: Sexual Purity, Homosexuality, Abortion, Pornography, Evolution, Drugs, Drunkenness, Peer Pressure, School Violence and Secular Rock Music. We have also included BRAND NEW comic stories dealing with Honor, Suicide, Bullying, Sexting, Cutting, the Supernatural and Pluralism. God’s wonderful plan of salvation is incorporated into each of the stories.
If you are worried about it being legal to give a Bible away at school, the Student’s Legal Rights on Public School Campuses are printed on the back cover of the Bibles. It says you have the right to give Bibles away on campus during non-instructional time.
To get your free Bible you’ll have to hurry as this is the last day. The only suggestion I would have is to not worry whether or not your friend believes in Jesus as Savior; ask if he or she has a Bible. If not, give one and encourage your friend to read and discuss it with you.
I’d like to hear from any of you who have given a Bible to a friend, and what the reaction was.
